I just launched another new site, 30 Year Vacation.
Retirement sounds great. You quit work, play golf, and travel, and have no responsibilities. Who wouldn't love it? But isn't that what a vacation is? We can easily spend 30 or more years in retirement, so when all the Baby Boomers hit retirement age, a significant percentage of the adult population could go on a perpetual 30 year "vacation".
Does that idea of retirement still make sense? Can individuals afford that? Can society afford it? Does it make sense to have such a huge percentage of the population sitting on the sidelines when there is so much more that they could be doing? What would happen if Baby Boomers were to toss out the idea that retirement is nothing but a 30 year vacation?
We could mobilize an army of people who finally have time to volunteer for social organizations, make schools better, and otherwise improve their communities and society in general (Meaning). We'll do it in lots of different ways, like volunteering or launching businesses (Method). And our ability to make this happen will be constrained by the two big elephants in the room, Wealth and Wellness.
See more at 30 Year Vacation!!
